In a late-night drive-through chapel in Las Vegas, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were married on Saturday, capping a relationship that lasted for two decades, included two different romances, and made numerous tabloid covers.
The couple’s marriage was revealed by Lopez on Sunday in her fan email under the heading “We did it.” Lopez first announced their engagement on the same newsletter, “On the J Lo,” in April.
“Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient , “Lopez sent a telegram bearing Jennifer Lynn Affleck’s signature.
The couple travelled to Las Vegas on Saturday, stood in line with four other couples to get their licence, and were married at the Little White Chapel, which has a drive-through “tunnel of love,” according to Lopez. A Bluetooth speaker, according to Lopez, played their quick march down the aisle. She referred to it as their best night ever.
If you wait long enough, Lopez added, “Stick around long enough and maybe you’ll find the best moment of your life in a drive through in Las Vegas at 12:30 in the morning in the tunnel of love drive through with your kids and the one you’ll spend forever with.”
The couple’s marriage was announced for the first time on Sunday after the Clark County Clerk’s office in Nevada revealed that their marriage licence had been processed on Saturday. According to the marriage licence application, Lopez intends to adopt the name Jennifer Affleck.
Lopez and Affleck’s representatives declined to respond.
The early 2000s relationship between Lopez, 52, and Affleck, 49, that gave rise to the moniker “Bennifer,” was rekindled this year. They previously appeared together in the films Gigli (2003) and Jersey Girl (2004). They got engaged around that time, but they never got married.
In 2005, Affleck wed Jennifer Garner; they have three kids together. 2018 saw their divorce.
Lopez has previously been married three times. She had brief unions with Cris Judd from 2001 to 2003 and with Ojani Noa from 1997 to 1998. After getting married in 2004, she and singer Marc Anthony were wed for ten years and have twins who are now 14 years old.
